It's nice, in any case, for the closest thing to a crisis in my life to be that I won't have enough leave built up by the 16th to take the four days I am scheduled off. I have to talk to my boss about it, but I think I can take leave without pay and still have the time. So right this moment it is more of a proto-crisis.
Mostly I just have to figure out how to frame what I want to say. Which shouldn't take long.
